India has removed fencing in some areas along the Line of Control (LoC) as revealed by Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi.
The Foreign Affairs Minister in a video statement has revealed that five places have been identified where India has partially removed the fence. Considering this misadventure by India, the situation across LoC might escalate.
Qureshi said, “What are the motives behind it? Is there going to be a new misadventure? We are also concerned about this.”
This statement was released by Qureshi a day after the Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat gave warning that the situation along the LoC might escalate at any time and the Indian army is ready for it.
Pakistan Army spokesman Major Gen. Asif Ghafoor said that the statement by Rawat was “provocative”.
Ghafoor tweeted, “Provocative statements and preparations for escalation along the LoC by India’s COAS [chief of the army staff] appear to be an effort, as usual, to divert the world’s attention from widespread protests in India against the CAB.”
Adding, “Pakistan’s Armed Forces shall befittingly respond to any Indian misadventure or aggression.”
Since the Indian lockdown of IoK from August 5th, Qureshi has sent seven letters on the situation in Kashmir to the UNSC
Qureshi said, “Nearly 300 innocent civilians have been targeted, including women and children, since January 2019 and nearly 3,000 ceasefire violations have taken place on the Line of Control.”
Also, he claimed that India has deployed Brahmos missiles in IoK. He has asked UNSC to take notice of the situation.
Qureshi said, “The spike in anti-tank missile deployment in occupied Kashmir is of concern to us, as since August 2019 until now, missile tests at regular intervals reveal a clear pattern of the dangerous Indian intentions which can hurt the peace and stability of the region.”
